Cute Host, Dull Show
9 August 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dolly Parton was and still is one of the most vivacious singers/actresses to have graced the stage and screen, so to have the show bearing her name have had no life is hard to accept. Sadly, it was a real sleeper.

The show had big-name guests and a host that was not only beautiful but also normally full of laughs and bubbles. The show's format and scripts somehow constrained all that and the production settled for too long and dreamy song sequences, darkly lit sets, uninspired camera work, Oprah trying to sing, gospel choirs, flat skits, and just bad "down-home country" clips of everyday people trying to be silly. The show was destined for disaster.

Happily, Ms. Parton's career survived!
